Day trips from Shiraishi Island, #japan

We don't have much autumn color here on the island but October is an excellent time to get in some hiking, running, or just lazing on the deck of the Shiraishi International Villa. It's also a great season for bicycling and if you've ever had a yen to bicycle around some of the Inland Sea islands, now is a great time to do it. As a matter of fact, we recommend heading over to Kitagi Island next door for a day trip (see downloadable map at link location). Another great day trip, but for walking, is Manabe Island. Ferries leave every few hours.

By using Shiraishi Island as a base, and doing day trips to surrounding islands, you can save money and time. We hope to see you this autumn at the Shiraishi International Villa!
